Employment Opportunities for People with Disabilities

October is National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month! Working with a disability doesn’t mean that the work is boring or not fun. You can do anything you set your mind to, with great success! The council is here to help, but there are a lot of other resources available online to help you find the right employment.

This page from Learn How to Become breaks down all the different options for work that are out there. Take a moment to look over the choices, challenges, and options that people with disabilities can encounter in the workplace. Remember, this is just a starting point. Keep looking until you find the right place for you!


If you work or want to work in Utah, there are additional resources for you through Work Ability Utah.

And, don’t forget about the Utah Developmental Disabilities Council Take Your Legislator to Work program, going on now!
